These medieval shoes were considered quite the status symbol in their time, even though they were so impractical that laws were invented to dictate how long they could be. Along with chamber pots and the plague, these are probably among the things best left in the middle ages.
5. The Mullet
A quintessentially ’70s look, short in the front and long in the back has never really been a good look for anybody. Some people have tried to wear them in an ironic way since, but we say just cut it off. It’s not going to work for you.

These saggy pants were famously worn by MC Hammer and have since proved popular among young girls most likely to be found waiting in line at Starbucks for pumpkin spice lattes.
